Cog Set Papyrus Racing Club is for riders from Youth A upwards to adults. We feel we are a bit different insofar as we have partnered up with a charity, Papyrus whose aim is to prevent suicide in young people. In 2016, we lost a rider, Kyle Lewis, who took his own life seemingly out of the blue. This has profoundly shaped everyone involved in the club. We are very proud to make our ethos promotion of this amazing charity as oppose to say promoting a bike shop.
With great sadness but the utmost respect for the situation we face, all Cog Set activities are suspended until 30 April in keeping with British Cycling guidance. This includes Saturdays, rollers, and all racing is suspended too by BC.
Thursday night Time Trials have been also been cancelled.
